Kiran Desai!

This week Kiran Desai became the youngest woman to win the Man Booker Prize for The Inheritance of Loss.

Absolutely wonderful news!

And, even better, a perfect excuse to bump Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard to the top of my to-be-read pile!

Read the full press release.

  1. This is fabulous news indeed and another fabulous opportunity to thank you for sharing The Inheritance of Loss with me. It’s still on my tbr pile (blush) but with the risk I’ll sound illogical I’ll say I’m not surprised she won Booker in spite the fact I haven’t red winning novel. I said that because of Hullabaloo which is lovely little novel but most of all, novel which undoubtedly introduce very promising author. And Booker is marvelous proof.

    What a lovely bookish news these days we have!
